May 012013

Who’s ready for a little Me Made May? We certainly are!  Both Nhi and myself signed up for this year. Here are our pledges below.


I, Amity of Lolita Patterns, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’13. I endeavor to wear one handmade item each day for the duration of May 2013!


I, Nhi of Lolita Patterns, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’13. I endeavor to wear 2 of me made pieces of clothing or accessory each day for the duration of May 2013. There will be no limit to repeats as I spend many, many days in my “pajama jeans”.

I also pledge to sew at least 1 Me-Made item to be gifted to a non-sewing friend(s) to share the joy that comes with a home sewn item. I call it the drug dealer plan; the first hit is free and they’ll come back for more.


It is the first year for both of us and go Nhi!! She went all out on her pledge! I know some 400 of us are participating?!?! That is awesome! We joined the Flickr group and will be posting often.  We will probably only do recaps on the blogs once a week as we know it is not that fun to see an outfit post everyday.

What was my first Me Made May setback you ask?? My camera is missing!  I went to take a pic for today and it is nowhere to be found! I called around and guess what? I found it in the trunk of a super nice lady I met at PR weekend who drove us around to the different fabric shops around San Francisco!  So my first few days will have to be either shoddy phone pics or I’ll re put the outfits on as soon as my camera arrives in the mail :)  Luckily Nhi is much more prepared and is not having this same problem!

PR Weekend was so much fun! We cannot wait to tell you about it. But that is for the next post (when I get my camera back and can share pics.) In the meantime, here is a sneak peek from Nhi’s camera.

Sandra and Deepika! What fun!

So Me Made May….are you in?  What do you think of weekly posts instead of daily posts? Or would you prefer daily posts?

  1. Sweet! Dang, Nhi, that’s an impressive statement. I joined again, too, but only for 3 days a week. The prego-ness is quickly hindering my clothes choices. Hope to see y’all soon!!
